Firmino double helps Liverpool to win over Osasuna

Liverpool signed off their pre-season preparations with a convincing 3-1 win over La Liga side Osasuna at Anfield on Monday night.

Twenty-four hours on from the 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao, this was an opportunity for some of the fringe players to stake their claim and Takumi Minamino did just that as his strike gave the hosts an early lead (14).

Minamino was lively throughout as a one-two with Kostas Tsimikas allowed the full-back to cross for Roberto Firmino to double the lead (21), and the Brazilian added a third four minutes before the break.
